State legislatures must reverse the secession of HOAs from the constitution

In early January 1930, Mohandas Gandhi composed a Declaration of Independence for Indians against the British Raj. I have paraphrased this document as befitting the state of affairs today with the state protection of authoritarian homeowners association regimes.

We believe it is the inalienable right of the [homeowners in HOAs], as of any other [citizen], to have freedom and enjoy the fruits of their toils and have the necessities of life, [liberty and the pursuit of happiness].

The [state legislatures] have not only deprived the [homeowners in HOAs] of their freedom but have based itself on the exploitation of [these homeowners], and [have ruined their respective states] 

  1. economically [by failure to hold HOAs financially accountable],
  2. politically [by depriving these homeowners of their due process and their equal application of the law protections that are applicable to all other government entities],
  3. culturally and spiritually [by supporting the HOA’s objectives of maintaining property values without protecting the rights and freedoms of the homeowners]. 
  4. We believe, therefore, that the [state legislatures] must sever their connection to, [protection and support of, and cooperation with these independent HOA principalities] and [deny their secession from the US and state Constitutions].
